Great finds.
I like the comment about the age of the coin because I showed my Chinese goldfields coins to a Chinese Mandarin teacher at SOHS and told her they were found on the Otago goldfields and she said that they can’t have been because they were hundreds of years old…but they were.
I have seen an identification chart of ancient Chinese coins BUT it was a but much for Mr Peabrain to work out!
Love both your finds.
